Taking a ride on the Erie Express Train or the horse-drawn carriage are highlights of a visit to Sauder Village!

Erie Express Train: Travel back in time on our Erie Express Train, a miniature replica of the original 1863 C.P. Huntington train that played such an important role in this country’s history. The train has five cars, including one that is wheelchair accessible. The train departs from the Depot and travels behind Natives ​& Newcomers before making a stop at Pioneer Settlement. The ride continues around to the 1920 Homestead area and loops back around back to the Depot. A train ride is not only fun, but offers an easy way to travel through the Historic Timeline as it develops in the future.

The train departs every half hour from the Depot.



Horse-drawn Carriage: A relaxing ride in a horse-drawn carriage through Pioneer Settlement Area is always a highlight of a fun-filled day at Sauder Village! The carriage leaves from the buggy shed near the Holdeman Church and travels to Natives and Newcomers and then back past historic homes, the log school and jail.  Hours vary by day - please check at Admissions Desk for daily schedule.
